id: "RAGE Will Feel Like a True PC Game"

There's a RAGE Q&A on NowGamer talking with Tim Willits, Creative Director at id Software, about RAGE, their upcoming first-person shooting and driving game. The Q&A is pretty general, asking about the game and its story. They also discuss its multi-platform development, and Tim feels that PC gamers will feel at home: "For the game designers the biggest focus for each system is the controller interface. We’ve taken very deliberate steps to make each system feel right in regards to the interface and the controller. We’ve been making PC games for over 15 years, so PC fans should rest assured that Rage will feel like a true PC game, not a PC port of a console game."

Besides, from all released figures Wolfenstein sold well south of 50,000 copies on the PC - any support offered after the initial release would be an act of goodwill that probably isn't merited given the sales numbers.

I'm pretty sure Wolfenstein sold poorly on all platforms. That said, where did you get those numbers?

Quake II wasn't any great shakes, though a lot of that weakness could be chalked up to the one-two punch of a buggy initial release (remember the fun of all those subsequent Point Releases?) and some of the worst sound design in a high-profile title in the last fifteen years.

What? Quake 3 had excellent sound design. Every sound was an important part of gameplay. The unique sounds of respawning powerups, the sound of powerups being collected, the grunts that players made when jumping, the sound made when you made a successful hit... every sound was important. Q3 is the best dueling game ever and really the epitome of 1v1 deathmatch.
